Cultural Exchange is the cornerstone of our J-1 program. We plan for at least 2 cultural activities a month, which means we have thousands of participants across the United States experiencing local culture. Cultural activities increase in the participant’s emotional ties to the community they’re living and working in, strengthens the relationships with their colleagues, and introduces Americans to invaluable experiences from the participant’s home culture.
On January 30, 2013, Spirit participants in Colorado were invited to a bowling night in Fraser, CO. The event was free to Spirit participants and there was also a raffle and giveaways! Participants were able to mingle with other J-1 participants in the area and enjoy the American pasttime of bowling!
